The position of the puncture certainly isn't a concern.  The size of the puncture might be an issue, if it small enough to restrict gas flow, but that doesn't seem to be an problem with your pistol.  I'd just put it down to an idiosyncrasy of your pistol and keep shooting!   :-*

Crosman air pistol - General discussion / CO2 puncture off-center
« Last post by Jaybo on January 18, 2019, 08:49:25 PM »
I own several air rifles and pistols. Almost always, the CO2 cartridges are punctured cleanly with a centered circular hole -- except for my Crosman 2240 pistol. The puncture from the 2240 is small, off-center and not round. The pistol seems to fire okay -- I don't have a chronograph -- but I'm curious if the described puncture affects performance (velocity? accuracy?) or is it a defect in the pistol?

Thanks for your help.

shoots well Wayne
peek is too hard for seal material on co2
go with ptfe or carbon filled ptfe or delrin but I think delrin is a bit hard really

I see the price marked on the box is $14.95. I'll give you $20.00 for it. A full $5 profit. 25% profit you can't pass that up.
;D  I paid $142.95 by the time it made it to my house, add another 31 dollars for the seal kit and I've got $173.95 invested.  I'm going to get hold of some peek or delrin and try making my own poppets for guns on my drill press but I'd much rather have a lathe for that but then you're talking way more money.

Here's a good five shot group I did at five yards with the nice one that I did the day I sealed it up.

Thanks for all the great replies everyone !!! I got her all sealed up yesterday and she seems to be a great shooter.  One thing that I did notice is on this gun lo and high power are actually about 100fps apart, on lo power it's shooting at about 315 and on high power it's doing about 420fps with the JSB18.13's. It's very consistent on accuracy too.  When I had the gun apart I couldn't believe how nice it looked on the inside, even the hammer assembly was really nice and clean looking.  I've probably had more shots through this gun in one day than it's had through it in 62+ years  :-*
